Cook linguine

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce.

Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt in a large pot. (NOTE: Use same for 4 ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Heat Guide for Step 5 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/4 tsp mild, 1/2 tsp medium and 1 tsp spicy! Add linguine to the pot of boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min. When linguine is tender, reserve 1/4 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain and return to the same pot. Set aside.


While linguine cooks, halve baby tomatoes. Zest, then juice half the lemon (same for 4 ppl). Cut remaining lemon into wedges. Cut 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) into small pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.

Roast shrimp

Add butter and half the garlic to an 8x8-inch baking dish (use a 9x13-inch baking dish for 4 ppl). Using a strainer, drain and rinse shrimp, then pat dry with paper towels. Add shrimp to the baking dish with garlic and butter. Season with salt and pepper. Roast, in the middle of the oven, until cooked through, 10-12 min.**

Cook bacon

While shrimp roasts, cut bacon crosswise into 1/4-inch strips on a clean cutting board. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crispy, 5-7 min. ** Remove pan from the heat. Reserve 1 tbsp (dbl for 4 ppl) bacon fat in the pan, discarding any excess fat.

Make sauce

Heat the same pan over medium heat. When hot, add tomatoes, tomato sauce, remaining garlic and 1/2 tsp chili flakes. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Cook, stirring often, until tomatoes soften, 2-3 min. Add spinach and stir together until spinach wilts, 1-2 min. Add sauce and reserved pasta water to the large pot with linguine and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

Finish and serve

When shrimp is done, add lemon zest and 1/2 tbsp lemon juice (dbl for 4 ppl) to the baking dish and toss to combine. Divide linguine between plates. Top linguine with shrimp and drizzle over any garlic-butter from the baking dish. Squeeze over a lemon wedge, if desired.
